A cosy and eclectic stone cottage in the lovely village of Llithfaen. WiFi, wood burning stove. Pub and local shop in the village.

10 minute drive to amenities in Nefyn.

Pen y Groes is a homely and inviting holiday cottage with a wood burning stove, attractively furnished with a mix of antique and modern pieces accented with stylish fabrics - perfect for returning to after a fun-filled day. This charming character cottage in the heart of Llithfaen village, with its own vibrant community-run pub and village store, is the perfect base for exploring the many delights of the Llyn Peninsula and for those seeking a traditional Welsh getaway. Relax and unwind the minute you step through the front door into the open plan lounge/ kitchen area with it's under floor heating.

Return after an action packed day to curl up on the sofa to watch some TV in front of the wood burner, a welcome addition on a chilly evening, or when it's warmer, the seating at the front of the property provides a perfect spot to watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Next to the sitting room is the well-equipped kitchen where you will find all the essentials required to whip up a delicious home cooked meal before settling down with your loved ones to discuss the day's events and plan the next day's walk or beach day. Alternatively take a short walk to the community run pub with a playground right next door - ideal for the children.

At the end of the day, climb the carpeted stairs to the first floor where you will find two sweet bedrooms, a double and a twin. Serving these two rooms is the bright shower room with WC and basin. Llithfaen is one of the highest villages on the Llyn Peninsula and is close to the stunning and magical Nant Gwrtheyrn, the National Welsh Language and Heritage Centre, which is located at the foot of Yr Eifl.

Why not take a walk and visit this secluded village built in Victorian times and enjoy a coffee in Cafe Meinir, soaking up the amazing views and history of this special place. You can also access the stunning coastal footpath or walk up to Tre'r Ceiri, an ancient hillfort going back to the Early Bronze Age. Visit some of the breath-taking beaches and coves dotted around the Llyn Peninsula.

Just a short drive away is Porthdinllaen beach, home to the famous Ty Coch Inn, voted one of the top ten beach bars in the world. This part of Wales is incredible with unique culture and mythical heritage with some of the best visitor attractions, such as, the Italianate village of Portmeirion, an adrenaline-filled ride on the Velocity Zip Line or an afternoon of family fun at Greenwood Family Park. Will a week be enough?

Not what we expected!
Cottage is on a corner with bus stop right outside - very busy, noisy roads early morning. It improved over the weekend, Good location, clean, comfortable beds and well equipped but... VERY SMALL. It is unsuitable for two couples. Shower area is very small, tiny basin and badly fitting sliding door. Nowhere to dry anything, no hairdryer either. The view is superb but only from outside the gate. Patio area is in the front with a rusty seat and noise. Good location to visit all over the Llyn Peninsula and Anglesey. There is no back garden. A shop and Pub very close to cottage.
